Against the Dallas Cowboys, the Bengals first team played two possessions, which was roughly the entire first quarter. Against the the Denver Broncos, the first team offense played well into the second quarter, finally leaving after three possessions with just over eight minutes remaining in the first half. Against the Philadelphia Eagles, the Bengals first team offense played the game's opening six possessions, which spanned the entire first quarter.

Much like against the Eagles, the Bengals are going to play their starters in the first half this weekend against the Buffalo Bills, according to Marvin Lewis. How has the first team offense done thus far?
